Arn Anderson and Tully Blanchard, known as members of the Four Horsemen, were a professional wrestling tag team in the 1980s competing in Jim Crockett Promotions and the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) as The Brain Busters.
The duo made their debut late in October 1988, as "The Brain Busters," due to being under management of Bobby "The Brain" Heenan (and, by default, members of the Heenan Family). It was commonplace for the WWF at this time to assign wrestlers to some sort of gimmick, or new identity. The Brain Busters were allowed to keep their names and ring persona. The only changes Arn and Tully made to their style were pointing to their heads to show they were smarter than everyone else and the use of a spike piledriver as a finishing move.
The Brain Busters made their pay-per-view (PPV) debut at the 1988 Survivor Series in the 10 team tag match, where they eliminated the Hart Foundation, before being elimainated via double disqualification with the Rockers. This led to a match with the Rockers on WWF Superstars of Wrestling where both teams were again disqualified before the match could even get started. This kicked off a red hot series of house show matches. One match in particular on January 23 1989 was rated as one of the 50 greatest matches in the Pro Wrestling Illustrated (PWI) 10th year anniversary issue, where the Brainbusters narrowly defeated the Rockers as Anderson held down Marty Jannetty's leg as Blanchard pinned him. The teams wrestled to yet another DQ on the March 11, 1989 edition of Saturday Night's Main Event.Less
